"What you don’t see in the video is six other bulls that (the bull elk) was also trying to keep away from his herd. He was very stressed; he was drooling and peeing everywhere, trying to mark his territory."The man seen in the video is fine, according to Foster.400-POUND BEAR FOUND UNDER DECK OF COLORADO HOME"I couldn’t watch it anymore; it was very sad to see this animal go through this," she said.

"When we left a ranger was walking around the area and I went and told him. I don’t know what happened after that."Elk are commonly spotted in the Centennial State, and officials with Colorado Parks & Wildlife believe there are somewhere north of 280,000 of the mammals that roam the state.Elk spend much of their time at or above treeline during the summer, moving to lower elevations in the fall, winter and spring, according to the Rocky Mountain National Park said.
